Deena grew up doing yoga since she was kicking in the womb, but it wasn’t really until she found this sweatiness that the true love affair began. After many major physical injuries that limited her mobility and life traumas that held her down, Modo brought her back. She is greatly inspired to help people get out of physical and emotional pain and live life to the fullest.
Deena Robertson is the co founder of Modo Yoga Danforth in Toronto, Modo Yoga London in Ontario, and Modo Yoga LA. She was a member of the Modo Teacher Training Faculty for nearly 8 years until she decided that wanted to focus full time in LA.
Her background in competitive basketball, volleyball and European handball was the seed for a strong passion to find ways to challenge the body while being mindful and attentive to long term health. Her classes will inspire you to challenge yourself to new heights and truly start to listen to yourself.
She is grateful for all her life lessons, and her teachers, greatest of all being her mother JJ who taught her that life is what you make it with such gems as “Shit happens, but suffering is optional!”
